My mother-in-law moved out of her house and into an independent living apartment building several years ago. She left a lot of things behind that she didn't want, need or have room for in her new home. The family got together and each took things that had special meaning or memories for them. The rest was donated to charity. One of the items my husband brought home was a old card table.
At first I said "no, thank you". Then I decided it might be really cute with a coat of paint and a new top. My husband was so sweet and removed the top and spray painted the frame for me. I bought vinyl coated fabric and recovered the top.
I love my "new" card table!
